Fielding Freed to speak at the Horry County Museum

The Horry County Museum and the AVX Foundation present a lecture by Fielding Freed on Saturday, May 6th, on grunt gear of the Vietnam War.
A grunt once said that with all the gear on his back he felt like a turtle and moved about as quickly. This hands-on program will show some of the gear used and carried by soldiers and Marines during the Vietnam War. Understanding some of the physical demands of jungle warfare starts with the equipment carried by our troops. Historian Fielding Freed will show and discuss original examples including rations, field gear, headgear, uniforms, and the all-important back pack radio used during Vietnam. Veterans and their families are encouraged to attend.
The program will begin at 1:00 pm in the McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email To view a full list of programs, visit our website at
